break. president obama talking about breaking the quote/unquote fever of republicans and looking at what they have proposed is taking the battle away from the debt ceiling and moving it to having the senate duke it out over the budget process. of course, this means we will have another budget fiscal fight ahead but instead of it being over the debt ceiling, which a default would have been cataclysmic for the government or a government shutdown, this is an ability to be over the terrain of the budget process, normal give and take between the house, the senate, the white house coming in. and a probably more functional way to reduce spending and also get the fiscal house in order rather than having it attached to the debt ceiling fight. >> thank you very much, mark. see you in d.c. for the inauguration. and have a great weekend, buddy. >> you, too. >>> up next from manti te'o's high hopes to lance armstrong admitting he's lied to us for years, should the scandals mat tore the men and women in washington? why they say d.c. lawmakers should be concerned about those two stories. at 1:45, the a
and barack obama said that was the top priority but since november 6th, all we have talked about is debt reduction. that wasn't an issue. the words fiscal cliff were never uttered at any point in any one of the three presidential debates and that became the entire conversation for six weeks after the election and now more debt reduction. this is why we have elections to settle these issues. the issue to focus on is jobs. the president had a jobs plan on the table for two years now, the american jobs act. not going to get it passed in full but look at some of the elements of that. let's start to focus on that issue because that's the issue the american people care about. >> i want to play an excerpt of the president's first inauguration. let's play a little bit of what he said. >> today, i say to you that the challenges we face are real. they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily or in a short span of time. but know this, america. they will be met. >> zachary, the president said that they will be met. the same challenges and many cases, some improvements we have seen
. at a white house news conference yesterday president obama talked about gun control and the national debt. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. the president says he wants the gun debate to rise above politics. that's virtually impossible and there are constitutional questions regarding gun control no lawmaker can ignore. for some parts the president's gun violence agenda which he'll discuss with the vice president in a couple of hours the president is looking at executive powers that do not require congressional consent. vice president biden told house democrats there were more than a dozen ways president obama could circumvent congress among the ideas, beefing up federal data collection on criminals with guns and the health care toll of gun violence. >> there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. >> reporter: as parents of the children killed in newtown pleaded for new steps to reduce gun violence mr. obama conceded congress may reject
and small business. finally, president obama, please, ease up on all the regulations. i want to talk about this because nobody should be satisfied with 2% growth. let's talk to our friend dean baker from the center for economic and policy research. welcome to both of you. all right, dean, i think 2% is way too low. i think we should be striving for something that's more than twice and that history of america. why can't we get there? >> i agree that's way too low. your policies, they tried that unity, they're back in recession or maybe they're scraping along. that's not going to do it. the story here, two issues. one, we are going to see slower growth because we have lower population growth and that's because people didn't have kids 30 years old. i don't know if you want to blame president obama for that, that's strange, but you can do so. this was a qualitatively different type of recession. he had a housing bubble, it collapsed. that was not the nature of the recession in '74, '75, '81, '82. those were easy to get out of. easy to have strong growth because the fed deliberately raised inte

're moving off minoring in hip-hop and we'll talk economics here. president obama, maybe we'll talk hip-hop as well, in a final formal news conference before he takes the oath of office here in his second term spoke this morning, pushing for support on raising the debt ceiling. >> and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is running short. >> so the president says there will be no ransom, you heard him say no bargaining chip in this whole debt ceiling debate. the deadline to raise that ceiling is approaching quickly. some members in congress say they're willing to shut down the government to avoid raising that limit now. joining me now is ben stein. nice to have you

, the poll also said that we're talking about obama before the show that the majority of americans believe what's hindering economic growth is the fact that washington continually finds itself at an impasse or a position around how to resolve what seem to be to me and i think a lot of americans commonsense balanced solutions that should be put forward. without that, all of this, i don't think, comes to fruition. >> let me say one thing before we go. michael, if, in fact, the ofa infrastructure does work, does that not then -- does that not mean now all future presidencies will have -- >> the eternal campaign. to some extent, you do already, but this will rachet up one notch. >> it's also -- the political parties have disintegrated in terms of power. the republican side, everything is -- >> understatements. >> i know. the tea party groups, the stuff, those are now the epicenters of the political power right now. it's not the rnc. what organize for action is going to do is take look the dnc's traditional power structure and remove it. >> if we are constant campaigning from now to eternity, s

and i were talking about you think nixon would have some good advice for obama about how to properly do a second term? surely you can't be serious. >> there are such things as negative role models in life and nixon is not a bad one. something we forget about is nixon by this huge majority, one of the biggest in presidential history. yet, no support, you know, two houses of congress, controlled by the democrats so he overreached. he did something called impoundment. he said, democrats can vote all the programs they want. i'm not going to spend the money. even if it's not for watergate, nixon might have been impeached for this. it shows what presidents do when they feel too weak. president obama we heard a couple of weeks ago said i have read the literature on presidents in second terms who overreach and got the message. >> michael, how have second inaugurations historically differed from first inaugurations? >> well, usually it's sort of a somewhat pale echo of the first. you have a first inaugural speech, a big deal, president suggesting the soaring ideas. second one is more limited, mo

of 2006, i think it was, president obama -- and 2008, by the way -- when he was a senator, he talked a lot about the debt ceiling. remember, president bush was in office at the time, so senator obama would probably be against some of the things he was talking about, particularly the debt ceiling. the senator called it irresponsible to increase the debt. listen to then-senator obama. >> the problem is that the way bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents. number 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome so we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >>steve: there you've got the president, back then senator, back in the day saying that president of ours, he's running up the bills, and it would be unpatriotic what he's doing. and we cannot raise the debt limit. forward to his administration, and i think this is going to be the fourt

. you know, in policies, kind of according to what president obama wanted to do yesterday. >> let's talk about that. the president unveiled plans to curb gun violence yesterday. i want to listen to part of what he said. >> okay. >> congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. the type of assault rifle used in aurora, for example, when pared with a high-capacity magazine has one purpose. to pump out as many bullets as quickly as possible. >> it looks unlikely that the president will get ab assault ban by the senate. how do you feel about that? >> you know, just the fact that he is hearing our plea not only from aurora, but from newtown, from tucson, from all of these different places, you know, our pleas are being heard, and that is that we hope that, you know, other -- there are other people out there every day, getting killed, and we're trying to c b curb -- get some kind of policy in place so 34 people aren't affected every day due to gun violence. >> almost two weeks ago, you mentioned what would help you heal if cinemark would

-- we've been talking ad naseum about skisms within the g.o.p. obama is preparing to prioritize immigration reform on his second term agenda, a move that would do as much to divide the gop as it would to score points among hispanic voters. it would threaten for engulf the gop with in a heated internal debate that would make the fiscal argument seem like child's play. do you think that's true? >> yeah. it's a debate that if one side wins could marginalize that party for generations to come because the fact is that when you see that 71% of almost 12 million voters the last elections, voted for one political party, and that group that voted 71% for one political party, is the fastest growing group in the country. already 50.5 million strong. 18 years of age equals voting age. if they think they can ignore the concerns of a large portion of this country or simply use words like am midwesty, i can't even deal with talking about it, then they'll got something coming. they may become the minority party for generations to come, and i'm not sure that any politician that sits down worryin

number one. which is immigration. number two is obama care. number three, mystery scandal. so, let's talk about immigration, first. though i'm dying to get to that scandal. >> good morning. it's so great to see that view behind you. i used to have a view down the mall at my old job working for the senate majority leader and when i worked for bill frist and george bush was president, they tried to get immigration reform done. unfortunately that didn't happen. with a lot of democratic pushback, they didn't want to tackle that issue. i agree with maria that immigration is going to be very central on the president's agenda the next four years as well as the republican agenda, both because it's the right thing to do, it is a pressing issue and also because of the electoral pressure that both parties have to tackle this directly. number two, obamacare. we are only now seeing sort of the fallout and consequences of that legislation. there are lawsuits all around -- dozens of lawsuits, actually, against the administration on obamacare when it comes to religious liberty. we're seeing health care p

and getting pushback on that sort of brinksmanship and why i think, you know, obama feels like he's more leverage keeping on saying, i'm not going to negotiate with you about this. i don't want to talk to you about this. and he's getting some sort of subtle reinforcement of organizations traditionally been in the republican camp. >> dan, steve talked about a way that republicans behavior is different than historically congressional behavior has been and to that point i want to read a metaphor that you wrote today. you are fast becoming one of my favorite writers, sir. it's as if gop house members are 2-year-olds who have to exert a certain amount of energy before they're managed through necessary nighttime routines. parents understand that their 2-year-old may have to scream for an hour before bed at night but primal screams can be dangerous and intolerable for the financial markets and for the economy. congratulations, sir. that is an excellent analogy. can you unpack it a little bit and talk about why they're engaging in this behavior so bad for the country. >> there's, you know, a lon
. there are a lot of americans out there who own guns who think president obama will want to take them away. >> well, that is true. as we talked about before. we're seeing an incredible swelling not only in the purchasing of guns but in the, in nra membership as well. i think that there is an expected, expectation on the part of the administration that the national rifle association's power is going to be quite, formidable and that they are not going to be able to pass everything in their legislative package, which as you mention is going to be outlined in specifics, soon. it will include, an assault weapons ban. it will include restrictions on magazine clips and high capacity ammunition. that is the kind of thing that will be fought hard by the nra. white house doesn't expect an assault weapons ban to pass but it will include it in its goals because they want to include everything in its goals. i think what they're expecting in the end to find consensus on is more like, i said, consensus and cooperation in the area of background checks and screening, before guns are purchased. maybe the closing of
